Educator Network

Connect With Us!

The CSO wants to get to know you in order to support and provide opportunities for learning and collaboration. Our events and continuing education opportunities are intended to engage and inspire teachers with relevant topics, applicable learning and fun. Through our free workshops, events and network communication, we hope to build a long-lasting relationship with the educators in the region.

Our Educator Workshops are always free and eligible for CEUs. We develop them to address topics of interest as indicated by educator feedback and suggestion. Additional Educator events are planned throughout the year to stay in touch with the CSO.

Beginning March 18, we will release a daily learning activity for at-home music lovers of all ages.
